The confrontation between West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankar and the Mamata Banerjee government has intensified once again. TMC MP Kalyan Banerjee, while making a sharp statement about the governor, has asked people to file a case against him. Not only this, but he has also threatened to send Jagdeep Dhankhar to jail after being removed from the post of Governor. Kalyan Banerjee said, ‘We know that we cannot lodge criminal cases against him. We appeal to the people to complain about them, where they are promoting violence and crime. ‘
Not only this, Kalyan Banerjee threatened to send the governor to jail and said that once he stepped down from the post, action would be taken based on the complaint of the people. He will be kept in the same Presidency Jail, where TMC MLAs have been kept in the Narada scam case. Kalyan Banerjee said, ‘Don’t worry after 2024 many BJP leaders will go to jail. People who cannot handle the situation in Corona and cannot give people up to the vaccine will have to go. People of India are waiting for second freedom.’
Governor Jagdeep Dhankar reacted to this comment by TMC MP and expressed surprise. He said that he was surprised to hear Kalyan Banerjee’s statement. Actually, the case of Narada Sting case was transferred by the Governor to CBI. After this, two ministers of the Bengal Government, Subrata Banerjee, 4 leaders including Firhad Hakim, were arrested and sent to jail. Since then, TMC has once again attacked Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar. Kalyan Banerjee has also described the governor as the killer of the constitution for transferring the case to the CBI.
What is the Narada scam?
Actually, in 2016, before the assembly elections in Bengal, Narada sting tapes were made public. It was claimed that these tapes were recorded in the year 2014. In it, individuals who looked like TMC ministers, MPs and MLAs were allegedly seen taking cash from representatives of a fictitious company. This sting operation was carried out by Matthew Samuel of the Narda News Portal. In 2017, the Calcutta High Court ordered the CBI to investigate these tapes.
